Alternatives to living at home
Taking the step of moving out of your home is a difficult and important decision and you should be sure it is the right decision for you. It is not always a good idea to make such an important decision in a hurry or at a time of crisis, although of course this is sometimes unavoidable.
Moving into a care home may be one option, but there are many different services available in Leeds which may be able to help you if you want to continue living in your own home, such as personal help with dressing, bathing, or meals delivered to your home.
"Leeds Care Services Directory...making the right choice" is a useful booklet that lists care homes and home care providers in Leeds and has information about funding. It is published each year and you can get a copy by telephoning Leeds Adult Social Care on 0113 247 8630, you can also usually pick up a copy in your local library.
Leeds Directory can also help you find other services to help you with the practical side of looking after your home, like cleaning, gardening and repairs. Find details on Infostore.
